Travelstaffing - Loving where you work

Loving where you work starts with loving where you live.

Eastern North Carolina is truly spectacular. With its mild climate and breathtaking scenery, it’s no wonder that this unique area is considered one of the best places to live. The region offers an incredibly varied landscape and the lifestyles that go with it. But whatever appeals to you — city lights, stunning shorelines or small-town charm — you can count on a few similarities across the Coastal Plain that spans east of I-95 to the Outer Banks: four distinct seasons, exceptional quality of life and weather that entices you outdoors.
